Erm… they’re a dozy bunch of bints, I know, but isn’t this taking it a bit too far? And more to the point, if the spouting of seemingly-innocuous recreational racism is a custodial offence, shouldn’t the employees of the Daily Mail and Evening Standard start looking furtively over their repulsive, scabby and hunched shoulders?
‘Danielle Lloyd has been questioned by police over the Celebrity Big Brother race row. Reports said she spent more than an hour with police on Thursday - as a witness - at London solicitors Schillings. The Sun said contestants Jade Goody, pop star Jo O'Meara, Jade's mother Jackiey Budden, actor Dirk Benedict and singer Jermaine Jackson could be questioned next. The show's winner Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty might also be interviewed over insults directed at her.
The paper said police could "in theory" bring charges of incitement to racial hatred - carrying a maximum seven-year jail term - over alleged comments made on the programme.’
Oh, and a bunch of sweaty and leering Miss Great Britain organisers standing in – entirely unnecessarily vindictive – moral judgement on anyone? You have to admire their audacity. (And, for that matter, their PR skills):
‘Contest bosses, in a website statement, said they wanted to disassociate themselves from Lloyd and the race row.
"With hindsight, it would have been better not to have fired Danielle last November because we could have fired her today - and if we could fire her twice we would!"’
